The Showgirl

Tony Award winner Nina Arianda, one of the women who has tried or may still be trying to play Janis Joplin on screen, is going to play with Meryl for now.

See, girlfriend has joined the cast of the Meryl Streep-fronted Florence Foster Jenkins, the Stephen Frears-directed story of the titular New York heiress who had dreams of becoming a famous opera singer, this in spite of being woefully untalented.

Hugh Grant is also already on board, as St. Clair Bayfield, Jenkins’ English actor-live-in partner/manager.

Arianda will play a sexy showgirl trying to ingratiate herself into FFJ’s circle.
